Our Practice


We designed our new office with your comfort in mind. We have beautiful views of Mount Ellis and other parts of the Gallatin Range from every operatory, a comfortable lobby, and a private 'consult room' where we can discuss aesthetic issues and options for improving your smile.

We use state-of-the-art technology, including digital x-rays which allow instant image viewing and reduce exposure to radiation by up to 90 percent. In addition, our intra-oral and digital cameras help you see what we see. We strongly believe that informed patients make the best decisions for their health—and there is nothing quite like a photo to help you clearly understand the issues at hand.
